Working Hard

To say I've been busy would be an understatement, I've been a productive demon the last couple of weeks.  I am the typical over achiever never happy no matter how hard I work or how much I produce so I'm a little disappointed I didn't manage to finish the Finger Armor tutorial this week too. But I'm not going to beat myself up too much because it's more important to make sure the tutorial is correct and has all the information needed.  It will be ready for release next Friday though.
I have decided that Friday will be "Release Day" as it gives me a goal/deadline and also anyone who is waiting for a release will know which day to look for it.

Today's release is my Sand Dollar pendant

It's shown here with Kabela Design's Antique Brass Filigree Wreath which is available from Artbeads. It's fun to try lots of additions and anything with a center hole of 11mm to 15mm will work.

Reversed the Sand Dollar looks more like a flower

Though I show an elegant version in the tutorial you can fun this one up, switch out the crystals for firepolish and use multiple colors.
These are the flatter version of the Sand Dollar....the tutorial has optional scaffolding to ensure the height of the dome and on the ones below I also skipped a couple of the center rows for the flatter disc.

My Crab Chain was actually designed to work with this pendant and seamlessly works into the design as shown in the tutorial but you would need to purchase the Crab Chain tutorial as the instructions for it are not included.

I have listed ten sets of magnets in my store and I have more on order. The magnets are used in the center component.


  1. Wow they are all gorgeous but I especially love the bronze one... the addition of the wreath looks great.


  2. Thanks :) I like interchangeable things....I like to play with my jewelry....too old for toys :)
